I have just set up a second screen hooked up to my laptop, and the external monitor was set as my primary screen. But, I notice that whenever Firefox is on my in-built laptop (secondary) monitor, the firefox menu, as well as all the extension menus, are really short. The firefox menu at least has a scroll bar, but the others are unusable.

I tried disabling hardware acceleration (which, based on other questions, seems to fix certain other dual monitor weirdness around menus), but it did nothing. Any tips?

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to disable Firefox notifications whenever I take screenshots, and googling for solutions, I found the commonly suggested solution is to uncheck the "Pause notifications until Firefox restarts" box in Permissions:

[to turn off forever the "screenshot" splash notification]

[Copied" window]

This option is not available in my browser version; thus, I'm hoping there's a newer workaround for this.

Today Firefox container is suddenly causing significant problems. Container, starting this morning, is preventing me from posting articles directly from a news-site, like the WSJ. This is after an update to 90.0.2 (64-bit). In addition FireFox has also become unstable after I log into FB. The instability leads to FrieFox not responding and a hang serious enough to require a force quit of FF followed by a complete restart of my Mac!l

Hi, Does someone know how to install Firefox on Ubuntu Touch ?

I did install "Ubuntu touch" on my smartphone few weeks ago.

But without my favorite Firefox Navigator, this is useless for me !

Even a older version of Firefox will be fine. All i need for now, is a Sync of my configuration (bookmarks and Passwords Manager).

I know how to clear site data for certain websites, but I would like to do the opposite - preserve site data and cookies for specific websites and delete everything else. It's not in options, perhaps there is an addon that would help me achieve this? Or how can I export (make backup) for a website that I could restore back after clearing everything?

Firefox shoud (have an option) to move to top of page when (re)loaded or refreashed

(Recently) 08/02/2021, I have noticed that when many of the pages are (re)loaded into Windows-Firefox seem to then move toward the bottom of the page. I would like to have some way too force Firefox to load the page and then move to the top of the page or/and refresh the page and move to its top.

I don't know whether this is a new HTML command that people are using to force me to read the ads rather than the article, or whether this is something that is just a curd and I'm just noticing it.

So I'd appreciate if somebody who is more familiar with newer features of HTML and or a newer features of Firefox can tell me how this occurred and then can either tell me how I can remove it or oh suggest that there be an improvement of Firefox

Thanks

FF89 told me I needed to download and install FF90, unlike previous updates, which have happened automatically. It said my FF89 data (bookmarks, customizations, etc.) would be pulled in automatically. Alas, FF90 has not pulled any data from FF89 nor given me any prompts to import from FF89. Any ideas why this happened (or didn't happen, as the case may be)?

Yesterday, the websites jwz.org and dnalounge.com (yes, the two websites run by one of Mozilla's conceivers) stopped working on Firefox. They just keep saying "Connection Timed Out", despite every other website loading fine.

I went through all the add-on-disabling and troubleshooting steps emphasised here, but it hasn't solved the problem.

This happens in both Firefox desktop and mobile for Android, but works fine in other browsers. Again, I went through all the steps of disabling add-ons/plug-ins and operating in Troubleshooter mode.

Hello,

On a fresh win10 installation, I installed the latest version of firefox (90.0.2). However, firefox won't start after that.

I tried starting from the command line in safe mode (firefox.exe -safe-mode), and I see very briefly (less than a second) a window with the title bar "Open Firefox in troubleshot Mode ?" starting to appear, but it disappears almost instantly.

A similar thing (dialog window briefly appearing) happens when I try to open the profile manager from the command line.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, with no effect.

Any idea what could be the issue ?

JP

PS : this is posted from a mac machine, hence the mistaken mac tag. The issue is about a win10 installation
